The Adult Continuing Education (ACE) program offers tutoring for adults with Down syndrome in the areas of reading, math, and writing.
Tutoring is available for those who are 18 years and older and offered once a week for 90 minutes.
All lessons are individualized to the level of each student. Each student gets his/her own academic binder with lessons chosen specifically for his/her abilities. This is an ideal one-on-one tutoring situation where the student receives individualized attention.
The process is simple. If a student is interested in participating in this program, an application is completed followed by an informal assessment performed by the director. This information is used to develop the academic lessons.
Students and tutors a matched based on personalities and availability of tutoring times. All lessons are created by the director.
Reaction to this program is outstanding. Real friendships have developed with these tutoring sessions. The tutor learns from the student, as well as the student learning from the tutor. The academics are a plus for our students! The friendships are even better!
Volunteers are asked to complete an application and participate in an orientation.
